    That's going to be hard to find. Many people are in que looking for that one.

    Glad I scooped up blue Soar when I did. The reissue has already dried up.

    Blue Soar is hard to find in North America, period. You may have some better luck if you expand your sights overseas.

    Try the for sale section on these boards more often. A fellow member jukebot hooked me up with a brand spanking new blue version for $200 shipped to my door. Ebayers will rape you, and deals or on my case,- MSRP - are around. Personally, I'm fine with Soar. His ankles suck, but I can live with it.

    Great for people who missed out.
    Hope they will start up the Willis press as well.

    Ebay:
    Ha! All the stress I put myself through to nab a Blue Soar and I could have just waited three weeks. Whelp, can't predict the future!

    I ended up getting mine for $209 from a US seller on eBay. Advertised as "opened, but never handled," and from the way the tolerances were on the first transformation, I believe it. Only issue with my copy is a nice big paint chip on the forehead....


    [​IMG]

    ...which actually kinda suits him?

    Loving this guy. It's an older Fanstoys design and bit rougher around the edges in some parts than Stomp or Grinder (e.g. the thigh design, some wonky joint tolerances) but he's GORGEOUS and fun to handle. Not sure if there's a timebomb on them, but right now his ankles hold like a champ.

    Anyone else prefer the OG face? I tried swapping for the newer one that came with Grinder and ended up switching back. The massive brow just doesn't mesh with the more feminine features of the newer face.

    So worth it. Now I just need to nab Cesium and I'm all set on DiBots!

    If you want you can email fanstoys or PM dalianjj with that picture and ask them if they can send you a replacement face. Definitely worth doing.

    Yay! No more stressing over hunting down a blue soar. Toydojo to the rescue.

    The 1st reissue didn't, which I always thought was a missed opportunity.

    I didn't like the new mega-brow, but with the new faces installed for the relevant Dibots, the aesthetic is more uniform. Granted, each Dibot could have had a "better" face individually, at least the look is more proportional. Especially Sever.

    I can't wait for FT to start milking the repaint possibilities. Sovereign could have two more color schemes (comic and movie) and Willis could have one more (light green).

    In most cases including FT the reissue will come with exactly whatever the original run came with. If you don't have grinder and/or you need extra pairs of die cast gold chrome knee clips try sending a PM to dalianjj or emailing FT to request them to purchase. It worked for me.

    Dalianjj said there will be no repaints of sovereign.
